Did you know the very first regatta had five intrepid souls taking up the challenge to paddle one of Howard Dillís Atlantic Giant pumpkins across Lake Pesaquid. Itís ironic, this year, five paddlers will keep the pumpkin paddling dream alive while supporting local crop growers at the 21st annual Pumpkin Regatta on Saturday, October 19. Join in the fun!
